New Year's Eve | Chitungwiza

How did I end up in a foreign land, 12 of us huddled in the shadows of a tiny, dank room with only a flickering candle for light, playing music and worshipping God in Shona, with these beautiful ones I never thought I'd meet, in a high-density township I never imagined I'd walk in? As we sang and prayed together, I realized that the more incredulous the situation, the better. Because God wants us to move into the impossible, to go places we never thought we'd traverse, to touch people we never imagined we'd have the privilege of loving.

I'll never forget how I spent this New Year's in Zimbabwe. It's a glimpse of what is to come. I thank God so much for my friends Marc, Joy and Tino for taking me to this place on such a day. It was dangerous to drive around with the terrible road conditions & the rain, we saw several road accidents, but they wanted me to see this side of Zim too. With these God-sent fellow sojourners, I've made it this far. Bring on 2015! :)

The Difference

Wayfarers walk by faith and dream with eyes wide open. Living simply, they go places, break barriers, embrace people, and build bridges. They're cool if things go wrong; it's the journey that counts. They like being on their own, but love the company of like-minded people anytime! Wayfarers love to hang with the locals, make music in unusual places, and share stories. They're creative about ways to touch the world both on the home turf and on the road. Wayfarers are on the life-long odyssey of discovery with hearts anchored in Faith, Hope and Love.

Hello, I'm Janielle. I’m a muso based in Melbourne. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark spiritual conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a mission of reconciliation through acts of justice, truth and compassion among the young & free. Being a nomad at heart, I find ‘home’ when I stay with people on the ground, encounter the culture & discover what life's like for others.
